-doing nazis that harry reid and nancy pelosi disparagingly try to portray them as. they are very concerned about the long arm of government reaching in and making huge changes to a health care system that is the best in the world. jon: jehmu, rasmussen reports took a poll of the american people. here are the numbers they came up with. when asked which would be better, passage of the bill working its way through congress or no health care reform passed by congress this year, 35% like the bill that's kind of being formed. 54% said don't do it. i mean, doesn't that suggest that the political winds are aligned against the president and the administration on this one? >> well, i think it's funny because i have worked on a number of campaigns. to say what i'm about to say is probably not good. this poll is being controlled by the millions of dollars that the insurance companies have poured into their methods. they don't want any sort of reform. they don't want to be forced to have competition. they want a man in a suit to get in between a decision that me and my doctor are going to make. so yes,

with the coop? >> to quote harry reid, call it whatever you want, it will be a single payer. max baucus said we will have a coop but it will do the same as a single payer to me, it's the same with the public option. it's obscuring what this really is. obviously we depend on what the details are. but a coop, a public option, single payer, nationalized health insurance, universal health care, socialized medicine, it's all the same and it confuses people. we don't want that. brian: no confusion there. i know where you stand. thanks for the insight. >> thank you. brian: 10 minutes before the top of the hour. eric: bud cans are hitting college campuses. is bud light sending the wreng message? brenda: the ways and means chairman founded anothe another $750,000 and forgot to report tax returns and eye few plots of land he has. that just happens. . eric: anheuser busch fan can. clad in the colors of 27 universities. parents and schools saying the marketing campaign is promoting more than beer. rather, it's encouraging bing drinking. joining us with more on the subject is dr. fields a member of the red
you for coming. my ime is harry reid and the majority whip, dick durbin both stated that they would not be opposed to passing healthcare reform if they don't have the 60 votes necessary to bypass the filibuster and that they would pass it using a budget reconciliation. i'm wondering what you think about that and whether or not that would be a feasible solution if they don't have the votes. i don't think that's a good idea, for the record. >> the process known as budget reconciliation is a procedural mechanism unique to the senate that would allow for a way to get around a filibuster. filibuster requires 60 to bake it. when something is moved through reconciliation, it just requires 51 votes, so it is a process that is available. it is a process, however is subject to technical rules within the senate in terms of what may be considered under reconciliation and without getting too much into the weeds, there is so much contained in the healthcare bill that came out of the health committee that would not be subject to reconciliation, for instance, the wellness and prevention pieces. wha
, the transportation secretary called the program a huge boost for the economy. senate majority leader harry reid says he believes there are sufficient votes to get the additional $2 billion approved before the senate goes on summer recess. a recent study finds that the country's seven biggest rail transit operators have about $50 billion in a net capital needs. the house has approved and the senate is considering a request to give washington, d.c.'s metro $150 billion next year. they named the lack of money the metro's biggest problem. they say that service as willis said he will decline if they do not receive funding not yet that follows the crash that killed nine passengers. politicos says that the former inspector general was paid more than $310,000 in exchange for his signature on a separation agreement limiting what he can say about the circumstances of his sudden departure earlier this summer. republican senator chuck grassley says he is wary of the government-controlled companies use of the non-disclosure comment. finally, a top russian general says that russia has no intention of returning u.
the people but actually leaders and the house from man to pose a to harry reid and things leaders have said about bush and not once but did bush ever complain or said anything about his opposition. the fact that had a shoe thrown at him, and posts like huffington post and moveon.org -- i wish people would get away from the name calling on all of the stuff altogether which blind and kind of distracts us from the issue at hand which is the issue that is being debated now, cap-and-trade, whether it is health care, or whatever. stop being so emotional about political things, whether it is barack obama or the republicans, we should not take glee in uplifting a mere man. it is about the greatness of this country and the things we need to do to help and continue to make this country the greatest nation in the world. host: the word is out from scotland. you know there was going to be a decision as to whether or not the lockerbie bombing would be free on compassionate grounds because he has prostate cancer. the associated press just ran this, scotland's justice minister has freed the terminally ill
the senate, and i usually do, watch harry reid and them, and he tears right into the public option for health care. during that time -- if you don't believe it just go to canada. he goes on fox news and just sits there with some 40 doctors they got. the talk about how bad the canadian medicine is. now the question is, does mitch mcconnell no his absolute stone cold line cannot or does he just like all the time? which is it? anybody would know his line about that if he is watched -- if he watched the for cigna. does he purposely lied all the time? guest: no, i do not think his line and in those statements, but i congratulate the caller on noting one of his most important tactics since he has been republican leader. he does it use his speeches, often his morning business-type speeches on the senate floor to consistently address an issue. the first to did in this session of congress was the closure of guantanamo. he hit that hard, consistently over a long period of time, and i think have some effect. he is doing the same now on health care reform. i think his office would be happy to provide the
unions which are a big factor didn't want this. harry reid said he didn't want this. that's why it doesn't exist. there's a case to be made for taxing "cadillac plans." ahead of goldman sax. >> that's actually the royals royce plans. they are such a tiny part. caller: as an independent, i feel both parties are going down the road. what should happen is you should designate who is universal. 18-64. from there, you establish a health saveings account for each person and attach their children under 18 to each one of those. you take the medicare money that's going out. the $260 billion a year and credit that to each person 18-64. from there, their employer, whatever they are kicking in can also be credited to that account. host: financing healthcare. complicated stuff here. what's the best approach? >> it is really tough. on financing medicare, it has been a successful program but not one that has done much to obtain cost. it has actually been a cost driver. it has proved to be completely impossible to rid of waste and high expense and wasted views. each time the government tries to put in
leader harry reid. . . the agency's ignore the their marks at their peril because the appropriations committees make it very clear that if they don't fund the earmarked they will cut their budget the following year. that was literally what happened when citizens against government waste first of the -- started looking at here marks in 1989/1988. the head of the office of management and budget listed all of the unauthorid programs and projects that were in the propriations bills and technically should not be funded by the administration. he got some phone calls and a letter from the appropriations committee chairman saying if you ever come up with such a list again we will cut your budget in half. ey can't cut our budget because he was working with us for much of that time. we decided they can't do anything to citizens against government waste so we will take up this effort and a few years later in 1991 we did issue the first congressional takeover we give out anchor awards, leave these big books in our newsletter in the backs and see what the organization has done. this year in parti
